Not-so-weekly Report of one Mr. Its not that big of a mountain.

Well, fist off the explanation. We went on a hike today and it was super cool, and looking at it it looks small but is actually pretty big. I didn't have to hard of a time going up, it was pretty easy, and just like Mt. Gram. Desert but then nice trees. I loved it. alot like coming home. but the way down killed me. WE ran down the mountain. Just my comp and I, sprinting down this downhill. It was fun until I got tired, then it sucked but its not like you can stop with a little Latino running ahead of you screaming at the top of his lungs "FASTER" Hmmm, not much else we found some more people to teach which is always fun. But yeah, business as usual. Love you allot and hope your week is awesome. 
Love E' Whetten

Part of the conversation that Anthony & his Mom had -
we get alot of evangelicals down here. they are kinda strange, they stand in parks and talk into a microphone.  its kinda fun  to walk past them, sometimes we have to hurry past, because if they see us the person with the mic yells something about false churches, not like they can do much except yell. and truthfully they are nice people, well most of them, some are just jerks, but yeah, we have the truth and if they don't want to listen, ok

this week could not have gone by any faster! literally so many things happened i don't think i will remember it all. new years was great, we spent in here in our area with the zone leaders who didn't want to be alone on new years:P and once again we got to see some pretty great fireworks some were really really close and the only thing that went bad is that my memory card filled up so i have to copy the pictures that the other missionaries took, sooo no pictures today. this Christmas and new years were not even close to being as hot as last years, i just remember that we couldn't even sleep those nights. but luckily there has been a really nice wind almost always and it cools off pretty good at night. enough so that we take our mattresses up onto the roof and just sleep up there:) elder Holmes and i are thinking that I'm getting transferred next week so i will probably be in a new area the next time i write. its a bummer because i really like this area and we are slowing progressing. yes it has been hard, people have dropped us, hidden from us, yelled at us laughed at us but somehow i got attached again. the members have changed a lot with the bishop and are a little more organized and excited to do some missionary work. but i guess only time will tell, we will see! we still haven't found any new investigators but despite that we are still pressing forward and searching for the people that have been prepared and not just the ones who are willing to get baptized, there's quite a difference. but the good things would have to be that its a new year, we have a lot of less actives to work with, new excitement in the ward, Holmes and i really get along, and to start off the new year i bought myself another jersey:) i hope everybody and there families have a successful year! i love you all!
